The Annapurna Circuit Trekking is known as one of the best-hiking destinations in the world and offers an incredible experience to hikers. This trek shares all that Nepal has to offer, which many Annapurna circuit trek start from the Besisahar, but nowadays because of the roadways, trekkers drive direct to Chamje or syringe. Heading through the rugged trail, it reaches to the Manang village. It is highly influenced by Tibetan Buddhism.

The climb over Thorong La Pass reaches the elevation of 17,769 ft and is a challenging yet beautiful highlight of the trip. Trekkers have an opportunity to view the Himalayan range as Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna (8091m), Manaslu (8163m), Fishtail, Lamjung Himal, Himchilu, Tukuche peak, Tilicho peak among others.

Muktinath on the other side of the Annapurna region is a sacred place for Hindu and Buddhist devotees. Muktinath temple is the central attraction here. Then, heading through the Kali Gandaki gorge, the trek joins to the Ghorepani Poon Hill via natural hot spring in Tatopani. The sunrise view and mountain views are breathtaking.

Following the trail, it reaches to the Nayapul and drives to Pokhara. Oak, rhododendron and other sub-tropical to alpine vegetations in flora and wild animals such as Mountain goat, Leopards, Jackal, birds such as pheasant, long-tail birds in the fauna are found in the round Annapurna trekking. Spring and autumn are the best seasons for this trekking, which is almost impossible in the winter or it becomes extreme adventurous due to the heavy icefall.
